CCG commence delivery of 42 Shawbridge homes
Off-site manufacturing specialists CCG have commenced delivery of 42 affordable homes at Shawbridge Street, Pollokshaws, in the south-side of Glasgow.

Delivered on behalf of Loretto Housing Association the Collective Architecture scheme will consist of flats, supported accommodation and houses on land formerly occupied by tower blocks.

Alastair Wylie, chairman and CEO of CCG, commented: “The use of our closed panel timber system will  reduce the impact of the development on the surrounding area with a much faster speed of build than by traditional methods.

“This, met with our expert construction experience, will ensure a swift delivery whilst ensuring quality as we begin the installation of the superstructure in early 2018.”

Completion of the homes is expected early next year.

Feels a bit grim...why the massive forehead?

trees on the pavement would help to soften it especially as its look deteriorates with age.

A bit stark, and only marginally better than what they delivered in Uddingston for the Clyde Valley Group Housing Association!

Surely this is more in the vein of Collective's Anderston housing - which is rather lovely.

Big Buttery Biscuit Building.

What would really lift the facade is to make the top floor a duplex with windows, people like space and not small 2 bedroom flats. The roofline looks like a mess when compared with the original design. Far better to use the dead space rather than what it looks like: they were told to close off the top floor and continue the brick look (why brick, Scotland is not a land of brick).

The 'joy' (or at least the little there was in the previous iteration) has been completely sucked out of this scheme. The entirely blank space (it almost an additional storey) on top is oppressive and dismal.

That guy in the first photo must be knackered: he's walked all the way from Govanhill in his sandals carrying two weans!
Wow! This development truly unlocks the bio-diversity and 'green living' potential of the area and improves access to Pollok Park and the River Cart. Every flâneur will think 'this building responds to the area’s rich heritage and rekindles a village atmosphere' as they walk past a large, monotonous brick facade.
